@SnarkyPlatypus Nooooooo! @cameronreilly may be a militant atheist, but he has other good points which should stop us burning him.

@SnarkyPlatypus Were the savages suitably impressed with the wonders of the Mobile Age? Or did the Yellowglen counter that?

@mpesce Ahem! I’m only 2 years older than you, so only 4% more evil. And I have no Wikipedia page.

@mpesce I’m so glad you’ve dicovered the Schools Spectacular.

Why can I remember the lyrics to Supernaut’s “I Like It Both Ways” but not the PIN for my cheque account?

@SnarkyPlatypus Casks of Yellowglen? We could stack them into a vast pyramid for Australia Day.

Dear Twitterverse, I need a tool to auto-unfollow @cameronreilly on Sundays and whenever someone mentions religion. ;)

@crispynoodles Exactly, the idea of making food into fakes of what you’re forbidden to eat is psychotic.

I don’t care if you’re vegan, there is no such thing as “tofu icecream”. Linguistic vandals.

@markhjones Normal review process? Step 1, see if submission is compliant, only then to Step 2, compare submissions. Telstra failed Step 1.

@middleclassgirl It’s my dear, dear friends at Telstra who inspire me. I am nothing without Donald McGauchie and Sol Trujillo.

@SnarkyPlatypus Which is the direction of causality? Snarking makes me healthy?

Dear Telstra, no-one cares how fucking clever you think you are at building networks, stop behaving like such a pack of cunts.

@StuartLivesey There have been clients who want the “personal” touch of a small business, but still the machine-efficiency of a big one.

@StuartLivesey Fortunately 1 of the 3 key projects has been for surgeons, i.e. medicos who understand the impact, they’ve been wonderful.

@firstdogonmoon If Penny Wong was Banjo Patterson, what sort of song would she sing for the carp? [Is that too obscure?]

@StuartLivesey 3 weeks with virtually no billable hours has, on top of longer-term health issues, probably destroyed by business. Probably.

@nwjerseyliz Twitter does give more of an illusion of privacy, I’m not sure why. Tho I know I’ve made a conscious choice to reveal more.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to nwjerseyliz

@nwjerseyliz Our links to people are now more robust now than ever, which allows us to maintain many more weak contacts we’d never have had.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to nwjerseyliz

@nwjerseyliz That said, though, I do sometimes think our best bon mots should be preserved, somehow.

@nwjerseyliz Yes, Richard Nixon worried about not having a “backup” of his ephermeral conversations too.

@facibus @andrewbarnett … the fact that someone is a Twitter user doesn’t mean there’ll be ANYTHING else we have in common.
